Country Music Stars on South Park Through the Years

Season 20 Premieres Sept. 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central

Comedy Central’s South Park launched on August 13, 1997, and will premiere its 20th season on Sept. 14. The series airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Yes, that means South Park is 20 years old.

Over the years, there have been hundreds of guest stars and characters made into the iconic cutout cartoons. We’ve pulled together a handful of country stars that have been impersonated, and one that surprisingly played himself.

Wonder how you’d look as a character? Go South Park yourself here.

  1. Taylor Swift. Her character was featured in the Season Eighteen episode, #HappyHolograms.
